In rural Somerset in the middle of a blizzard, the unthinkable happens: a school is under siege. Children and teachers barricade themselves into classrooms, the library, the theatre. The headmaster lies wounded in the library, unable to help his trapped students and staff. Outside, a police psychiatrist must identify the gunmen, while parents gather desperate for news. In three intense hours, all must find the courage to stand up to evil and save the people they love.

 

This book is far from perfect, in places the writing is clunky, it can be overly-sentimental, there's rather too much about Macbeth and most of the teenagers seem to have to school having forgotten to charge their phones. (Not a spolier by the way,).  As if any 17 year old ever goes out without a fully functioning phone.

 

That said, it's a race-though-it thriller, very tense and disturbing in places and ultimately a very good read.. There is no way I could have gone to bed without finishing it.
